I am thrilled to see the Maryland House of Delegates finally passed a bill allowing for marriage equality for all of our state's citizens ("A step for equality," Feb. 20). Still, I am confused by statements and amendments made and proposed by those that are supposed to be leaders of our fine state. Del. Steve Schuh of Anne Arundel County was opining on the creation as if he was there, and the Catholic Church claimed political arm-twisting, something they certainly have never been a party to.
My questions for all the groups who have consistently opposed equal marriage rights for all citizens is this: If marriage is a religious ceremony as you claim, why do you have to go to court to get a divorce? Why can you get married at the courthouse?
